First governor to protect net neutrality

He was the first governor in the country to protect net neutrality through Executive Order, refused to send National Guard troops to the border, and he filed a lawsuit against the Trump Administration over dark money.

Signed executive order requiring net neutrality

The Democratic governor signed an executive order requiring Internet-service providers that operate in the state to embrace net-neutrality principles in order to obtain lucrative state-government contracts. "This is a simple step states can take to preserve and protect net neutrality," says the Montanan, who is the first governor to employ an executive order as a tool to renew net-neutrality standards.

Create jobs by investing in roads and bridges

I ask you to join Representative Jeff Welborn and me in Building Montana; creating 4,000 good-paying construction jobs by investing over $300 million into bridges, water and sewer systems, schools and roads. And let's do it without raising taxes or endangering our solid financial position.

Put state government spending online, in searchable database

I've pledged to bring a more effective government to Montana--and we're doing that already, too. This Thursday, for the first time ever, Montana's checkbook will be online. We'll have a searchable database so that any Montanan--or anyone in the world, for that matter--can look at how we are spending the taxpayers' money. It's the right thing to do and it'll lead to a more effective government.

While there are some things I can accomplish without your active engagement and partnership, there are other areas where we need each other if we are going to make progress.

Crafting a budget is one of those areas where we need each other. Montana is the envy of other states: our unemployment is lower and our economy sounder. While nearly every other state's budget is awash in red ink, thanks to good fiscal management, Montana has amassed a half-billion-dollar budget surplus.
